The Best R&B Duos Of All-Time

Updated May 9, 2019 932 votes 128 voters 5.9k views42 items

R&B is a unique musical genre because it combines elements of pop, soul, funk, and hip hop. When most people think of the style, artists like Stevie Wonder and Whitney Houston likely come to mind. They reminisce about lovely songs you can slowly grind to. Sometimes, it takes more than one artist to get the job done. That is why there are numerous duos in R&B music. If you're looking for some new acts to follow, then give the artists on this list a listen.

Some popular R&B duos include K-Ci & JoJo, Chloe x Halle, dvsn, Majid Jordan, and Snakehips. 

This list has the best R&B duos of all time. Some are new to the industry while others have been cranking out hits for years. Vote for the artists you like to tune on when you want to take things down a notch.
